Things What Done Fell from the Sky: A Mysterious Whirlwind

H.A. Boys of the North Cadbury Rectory wrote an account passed-on to him by three eyewitnesses who saw a whirlwind appear from nowhere and pick up about a ton of hay. The whirlwind lifted the hay to a height of nearly 200' before losing strength. It dropped the hay over the church's roof and grounds.

Some think bizarre showers, such as those of fish and frogs, are caused by such weather phenomena as whirlwinds. However, this does not explain most of the cases we have observed here.

The incident occurred at 3:30pm on July 28th, 1904; two whirlwinds were reported in nearby areas, including Bristol, the following day.
